Roasted garlic goat cheese spread

This spread was made for when I entertained Denise and Sybil on the 23rd of May last week. I re-made it for our cousins visiting today and it was a hit once again. It’s a great appetizer to make with 10 minutes active time and 1 hour cooking time in total.
Makes 2 cups
  1. 1.Preheat the oven to 350F (175C)
  2. 2.In a medium baking tray, place 5 bulbs of garlic (yes, the WHOLE BULBS) with the tops trimmed with 1/2 cup vegetable broth, 1 tbsp chopped rosemary and 2 tbsp unsalted butter. Roast for 45 minutes, uncovered.
  3. 3.Let the garlic cool, then squeeze the garlic pulp out from the skins into a large mixing bowl. Smash with a fork, mixed in with the liquid from the baking tray and10.5 ounces of Montrachet goat cheese (or any soft goat cheese)
Montrachet goat cheese is available at most speciality cheese stores and grocery stores. I highly recommend Ideal Cheese942 First Avenue (Between 51st and 52nd Street), New York, NY 10022
